Xbox Game Pass Adds Even More Games, Including Fallout

CREDIT Microsoft

The acquisitions and new studio will give Microsoft a deeper slate of games in years to come.

So what can fans expect on the day?

Unlike the previous/current "Ready to Start" system, which must be configured by game developers, FastStart is a platform-level feature so all games should benefit.

The Xbox live stream is scheduled for Sunday, June 10 at 9 PM BST / 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.

At a media briefing ahead of the annual E3 video game show, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's gaming business, outlined initiatives to keep the business strong.

This year was easily the best conference that Microsoft have ever done, and here are some of the reasons why.

Trump, Kim agree to repatriating USA military remains
He also noted that the drills are quite expensive and the move will save a considerable amount of money for the USA budget. Associated Press writers Kim Tong-hyung in Seoul and Gillian Wong in Beijing contributed to this report.

343 also responded to criticisms of the last game in the series, 2015's Halo 5: Guardians.

"With the ultimate freedom to explore and play over 100 great games, Xbox Game Pass delivers our members an incredible value in gaming". So for those that want that advantage, there will be new Xboxes, too. They pulled off expert level trolling trolling with Gears POP! for mobile devices, XCOM-like intrigue with Gears Tactics, and a close look at Gears of War 5 with a few glances at gameplay.

It was nice to see something new from the Halo franchise, as it is definitely Microsoft's top franchise. What's more, this source included documents with various other details - notably that the project is code-named "Scarlett" and refers to an entire family of Microsoft devices. Halo Infinite is the next chapter of the legendary franchise that is developed by 343 Industries and created with its new Slipspace Engine.

Halo Fireteam Raven is an upcoming arcade shooter which sees up to four players grab turret-mounted machine guns to battle the Covenant. There has been speculation that cloud-based gaming is the future of that particular industry.

The developer stressed that it still has a "long way to go" before Halo Infinite comes out.

Halo 6 seems like the most likely candidate to actually make it into the Microsoft E3 conference today.
